I am currently researching my gggreat grandmother, Margaret Anne Haley WIlliams Tuttle Doran's line. She was born in 1832/33 in Mammoth Cave, KY. Her step father was John Williams, mother Nancy (no last name other than her first married name of Haley) born in NC around 1807. Margaret had at least 7 brothers and sisters (Augustus, Charlies, Emeline, Henry, Robert Newell, John & Elizabeth) and Nancy was widowed a second time before 1850 as she can be found in a census in Bourbonnaise, Illinois.
This entire line is probably the most enigmatic I have ever researched as each child gave information at different times and much of it conflicting. They also seemed to move around a lot. Margaret was interviewed in a local newspaper in Watseka, IL in 1926 at 78 years of age and gave probably the clearest account. Any information as to who Nancy may have been would be incredibly appreciated!
